An alleged victim is called negligent
Term is ascribed to Law in lawyer's response to suit
By Walter V. Robinson, Globe Staff, 4/29/2002
n his first legal response to charges that the
Rev. Paul R. Shanley began
molesting a Newton boy when he was 6 years old,
Cardinal Bernard F. Law has
asserted that ''negligence'' by the boy and his parents contributed to the
The cardinal's claim, filed in court by his attorneys, is
defense language. But a lawyer who is not involved in the case and has handled
other cases involving allegations of clergy sex abuse said last night that the
decision to use such a claim in so sensitive a case showed poor judgment.
Carmen Durso, a Boston lawyer who represents others who say they are victims
of abuse, said he found no legal fault with the language. But for Law to make
use of it, Durso said, ''is dumb beyond belief. It is a stupid argument to make
when you know that Catholics are already angry at you.''
Added Durso: ''From the start, the archdiocese has been incredibly stupid in
the way they have handled this crisis. And as hard as it was to do, they have
managed to make things worse.''
Last night, the parents of the boy, who was allegedly abused by Shanley
between 1983 and 1989, said they are furious.
''To say my son is legally responsible for his own abuse at the hands of this
monster Shanley when my son was only 6 years old is horrific,'' Rodney Ford, the
father of Gregory Ford, said in an interview. In the lawsuit, the Fords charge
that Law was negligent in overseeing Shanley, who he knew, or should have known,
was a danger to children.
It is not stupidity! These fellows would never rise to
the positions they've achieved if they were stupid. Arrogant is the word that
should be used. When a man believes he is a superman, and has power over sin,
then arrogance can rise to
levels where stupidity is dismissed as an irrelevant concept compared to the status of
such impervious power. It is only when this kind of arrogance is operating that a six year
old boy can be blamed for his own rape by a sexually perverted predator. The
humbleness that Christ taught His followers is not present among these priests.
It was not present among the Jim Bakkers, or the Jimmy Swagarts either.
Arrogance is not limited to the Romans. Arrogant religious leaders have many
things in common. The remorse of such individuals is only that they got caught,
and only lip service is given for those whom they victimized. The only wrongs
that they ever admit to are those wrongs which can be excused. It becomes
boilerplate language that should not be accounted as a personal indictment?
These fellows are not new to Christianity or
religion. It is this kind of leadership that the antichrist will find useful as
he takes control of the West. The antichrist in the end will turn on these
false shepherds. He will not share his power with any. They will find themselves
victims as they victimized others. Their arrogance on that day will be their
The Kingdom is not for this kind of religious
righteousness. The Kingdom is for those who forsake such corrupted systems, and
seek true righteousness that is only offered to the meek. All religions, as well
as all governments, as well as all peoples will be required to come to Christ in
humble repentance for their sin. The systems that produce the arrogance we see
in the news today must all go. The Kingdom of heaven will never support such

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Israel has relayed evidence to the
European Union that its aid to the
Palestinian Authority is being diverted to finance insurgency attacks.
Israeli officials said the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has
sent captured PA documents on the Palestinian use of EU aid.
Over the last year, the EU has provided more than
$70 million to the PA to pay
salaries of members of the more than 100,000 Palestinian civil servants. The
EU aid has earmarked for paying the salaries of Palestinian police officers,
Middle East Newsline reported.
Israeli officials said the Sharon government sent a
report to Brussels that details PA use of EU funding. The report asserts
that the PA pays 20 percent less to
its officers than reported to the EU. The difference is pocketed by the PA.
PA officers are said to earn between $250 and $500 a month, officials
said. But their salaries are paid in Israeli currency and based on an
exchange rate that amounts to 3.6 shekels to the dollar. The actual
conversion rate is close to five shekels per dollar.
The result is that the PA earns
$2.5 million a month from the EU aid, which it
then uses to fund insurgents,
the report said. Officials said a similar report was presented to the United
PA officials acknowledged the discrepancy in exchange rates but said the
practice is used to maintain a cap on public sector salaries.
In an unrelated development, NATO has rejected the prospect of sending
peacekeepers to separate Israeli and Palestinian forces in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corp., NATO
secretary-general George Robertson said there was no point in sending a
peacekeeping force without peace in the region. Robertson said NATO has not
received a formal proposal to send a peacekeeping mission.
On Tuesday, Israel's Cabinet rejected a United Nations demand to accept
an international contingent to investigate the Israeli military capture of
the West Bank city of Jenin earlier this month. Israeli officials said UN
secretary-general Kofi Annan failed to honor his pledge regarding the terms
of reference of the investigation.
Arabs denounce Israel for resisting UNfact-finding
CAIRO,Egypt - Arabs expressed
outrage at Israel for resisting UN attempts to find out what
happened when Israeli troops launched an assault in a Palestinian refugee
camps - and at the United Nations' apparent inability to
force Israel to comply.
"This is a scandal of international proportions," Ayed al-Mannah, a
Kuwaiti political analyst, told The Associated Press today. "How can the
United Nations fail to impose international legitimacy on Israel, which
owes its existence to a UN resolution?"
Annan tells Security Council he intends to
disband Jenin team
By Shlomo Shamir, Ha'aretz Correspondent,
Ha'aretz Service and agencies
to win Israel's cooperation, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan
told the Security Council on Wednesday he planned to
disband a UN mission to look into what
happened in an IDF assault on the Jenin refugee camp.
In a letter to the 15-member body, Annan said he intended to disband it on
Thursday. The letter was delivered as the council began deliberations on the
Good for Israel! They have stood up
against the world for their rights. Soon, a back to the Bible movement in Israel
will generate even more defiance from the world. The declaration calling for the
Third Jewish Temple, and the establishment of a Jewish Kingdom destined to rule
the world will bring worldwide opposition. The present resistance to secular
Israel is only a foretaste of what is coming. The world will chose the
antichrist over the returning King of the Jews. Opposition will grow to new
heights as the world will demand the freedom to sin without restraints. A single
Jewish religion will be proclaimed as the only true, and acceptable religion of
the God of the Bible to which all the world must submit. A puritanical Judaism
based on Biblical righteousness will begin putting pressure on the world. The
Kingdom will be offered to all who repent, but judgment to all who resist.
The United Nations and European Union
will explode in defiance to such proclamations against freedom of religion. Hate
is a mild word as to how the world will react to the Bible as represented by the
Jews of this soon coming return. The world might be satisfied to isolate these
hated religious fanatics, but they will not be restrained. They will have
singleness of mind reminiscent of those old fundamental Puritans of yesteryear.
Revivals will break out where the taverns will close not because there was a
release of zealot hatchet Annie's, but rather because their patrons due to
changed hearts will just stop coming. The world will hate these new converts to
Biblical Judaism, and their lives will become as lambs to the slaughter as the
world reacts. Apostate Christianity as it exists today will turn on these Bible
converts declaring them blasphemers. Christianity will become most opposed to
Biblical Judaism. The Christ of Christianity will be false throughout all the
great tribulation. The Christ of the denominations, the Charismatics, and even
the Baptists of all colors that go into the great tribulation will be as phony
as he is today among all of these professing Christians. The truly saved will
have been removed at the rapture leaving only the apostates as they appear
The hate and opposition of secular
Israel is only a foretaste of how the world will react to the soon coming

I will put a new spirit within you;
and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an
heart of flesh:

and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
21But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable
things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads,
saith the Lord GOD.
26A new heart also
will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and
I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an
heart of flesh.

spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes,

in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my
people, and I will be your God.

from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and
will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

Bush sees Ramallah
'window of opportunity'
WASHINGTON - US President George W. Bush is deepening his
personal engagement in Middle East diplomacy, in order to capitalize on what
administration officials say is a
"window of opportunity" created by resolution of the standoff in Ramallah.
Bush Spokesman Chides
By Barry Schweid
AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON –– The White House chided
Yasser Arafat Thursday for condemning
Israel as "terrorists, Nazis and racists" and said it would be better
for all sides to focus on peace issues.
The mild reprimand was delivered by spokesman Ari Fleischer in President
Bush's behalf. Emerging from Israeli house arrest, and hearing of a skirmish
at the Church of the Nativity
in Bethlehem, Arafat angrily accused
Israel of willfully damaging the shrine.
"The president thinks the important step for all... parties is for them to
now ask themselves what can they do to bring peace to the region, not what can
they do to speak ill of others," Fleischer said when a reporter asked about
Arafat seems intent on shooting himself
in the foot. The real test is whether the Palestinians are willing to shoot
themselves along with him? All preliminary indications are that they will! The
issue is not Arafat. The issue is increasingly pointing to the Palestinians
The world has decided it will have a
secular peace in the Middle East. A peace that will be instituted even if its
favorite son Yasser Arafat must go. I suspect the hate of the Palestinians
against Israel will never change, and in the end zookeepers under the disguise
of peacekeepers will patrol fenced in Palestinian enclaves. The homicidal
bombers can't be released again for any kind of peace no matter how phony to
work. I know I'm probably wrong, but its the way I feel. I just can't see a
forced peace that has any other possibility? The Palestinians are not going to
leave. Israel with all its power can't be forced to leave no matter what the
world might want in its heart. Peaceful coexistence is out of the question. It
can't be done with Arafat, and the world is about to learn it can't be done with
the Palestinian people either. The hate is far too ingrained. The entire culture
from parental influence, through schooling, into governmental controls, entering
their very religious values, including the Arab media would all have to be
changed, and even then a new generation would have to come along, This present
generation would have to go.
It happened for Israel in the past (40
years in the wilderness), but I doubt it can happen for the Palestinians?
The coming change in the hearts of some Jews is promised for this generation. A
new Judah will emerge to influence Israel. Another Judah will have the Third
Temple under its exclusive control. Conversion will be an act of God, but it is
only promised to some Jews. Secular Israel will continue to the very end
of the great tribulation. Palestinian hatred for Israel will continue to the end
also. Judah and Israel will only be united at the Second Coming of the Jewish
Messiah (the Christ). The Palestinian future in Israel seems only to be
containment and subjugation in my estimation. The future for the coming Jewish
Kingdom will be forced subjugation of the whole world. Maybe it will start with
2Judah was his sanctuary, and
Israel his dominion.
12And he shall set
up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of
Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four
corners of the earth.
13The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah
shall be cut off:
Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and
Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14But they shall fly upon the shoulders of
the Philistines toward
the west; they shall
spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand
upon Edom and Moab;
and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
18In those days the
house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they
shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that
I have given for an
inheritance unto your fathers.
19But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a
pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said,
Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.
14Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good
thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and
to the house of Judah.
15In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of
righteousness to grow up
unto David; and
he shall execute judgment
and righteousness in the land.
16In those days shall
Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and
this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
17For thus saith the LORD;
David shall never want a man to sit upon
the throne of the house of Israel;
18Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt
offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and
to do sacrifice continually.
11Then shall the
children of Judah and the children of
Israel be gathered together, and appoint
themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for
great shall be the day of
Palestinians set fire to Church
In his first public address following his release from Ramallah,
Arafat called IDF soldiers surrounding Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity
"terrorists, Nazis, and racists."
He was reacting to an incident that began when Arab gunmen who have been holding
hostages there for four weeks ignited fires in three places inside the church
complex last night. Some observers, such as former
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, say that it was no coincidence that this
occurred precisely at the moment the siege was lifted in Ramallah.

5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Consider your ways.
Temple Mount Struggle Continues
Yehuda Etzion, one of the long-time leaders of the
allow Jewish worship on Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount, is under
arrest until Sunday. Etzion, who has been tried and acquitted several times of
charges relating to his attempts to pray at the site, was detained for not
having shown up for his most recent trial against him on charges of this
nature. He says that as long as the Moslem Waqf illegally locks the site to
Jews, and as long as Waqf personnel are exempt from Israeli law, he too is not
willing to be bound to regulations forbidding him from praying there. Etzion
was arrested outside the Prime Minister's Office, where he has been holding a
protest vigil on this matter for the past two months.
Yehuda Etzion is a real thorn in the
side of secular Israel. I'm sure he is motivated by his own pride. What he has
going for him is that he is right. The Jews, and not the Moslem Waqf should
control the Temple Mount. Politically, this is not the time for such talk.
Politically, the time will never be right for such talk. The time is coming when
God will demand the Third Jewish Temple be built. The time is coming when God
Himself will motivate a true prophet in the likes of another Haggai. The
convicting phrase "consider your ways" will again cut to
the heart of the Jews. The thorn in the side will become an irresistible mandate
from the God of the Bible to build.
Secular Israel is in confusion. They
know God has placed this generation of Jews back in the Holy Land. They know a
miracle has happened centered around Jerusalem, but they remain blind to the big
picture of what God's intent is about. The blindness will be lifted after the
born again Christians are moved out of the way. Only then will the clear picture
be revealed through the Bible to the next prophets who will follow Malachi
and John the Baptist. There must be a Third Jewish Temple for the rest of the
Bible to take place. There must be a Temple for the antichrist to cause
sacrifice to cease, and to sit on the throne usurping the coming Christ's
position as King and God. The Bible says these prophets will be killed, but not
until after their testimony has been finished.
The Kingdom is the big picture that the
Jews are blind to right now. The Temple Mount and the Third Jewish Temple are
critical to the coming Kingdom. The Waqf will go at God's timing. When it
happens, the turmoil of the world will be enormous, but nothing will stop God
from finishing what He wrote in the Bible.
7Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Consider your ways.
8Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and
build the house; and
I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.
12Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and
Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all
the remnant of the people,
obeyed the voice of the LORD their God,
and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him,
and the people did fear before the LORD.
13Then spake Haggai the LORD's messenger in the
LORD's message unto the people,
saying, I am with you, saith the LORD.
14And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel,
governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the
high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and
they came and did work in
the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,
6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will
shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
7And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come:
and I will fill this
house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.
9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former,
saith the LORD of hosts: and
in this place will I give
peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
7And when they shall have
finished their testimony,
the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against
them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which
spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their
dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead
bodies to be put in graves.
10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make
merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets
tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered
into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them
which saw them.
12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them,
Come up hither. And
they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of
the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and
the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Sharon to present Bush the ‘most
serious’ peace plan yet
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is to leave tomorrow night for a
three-day visit to Washington,
where he will present what he said is perhaps the
“most serious” plan for
Israeli-Palestinian peace yet proposed.
“I’ll be presenting a plan, a serious plan, maybe the most serious that
has been presented by now, how to reach peace in the Middle East, how to
reach peace between us and the Palestinians,” Sharon said in an interview
with ABC’s Nightline TV program.
Although Sharon has not provided details of the plan, it is expected to
center around the convening of an
long-term interim agreements, and what he has referred to repeatedly
in the past as “painful
Sharon is also expected to detail for the US administration his plans to
create a buffer zone along
much of the West Bank. He acknowledged that the buffer zone – to include
fences, ditches, and electronic
surveillance devices – would be expensive, and he would seek
financial help from the US to build it.
The only end to all this violence has to be
peace. However, the kind of peace, and at what price should be asked? This
is the most dangerous type of peace presently being proposed. It is a peace
without God. A peace without changed hearts. A peace without victory. A
peace like that which ended World War I, but only led to the even greater
violence of World War II. In the end, Germany had to be crushed before the
world could have peace. The combined total victory over Japan with
unconditional surrender was the only peace that ever could have ended World
War II. How many times must the lesson be taught that without God, and total
victory there is no peace? The lesson of Iraq should drive home the point.
War should always be the last resort, but once engaged it must be absolute
victory, or the lessons of the past will come back to haunt us.
The Holy Land is the one place above all others
on planet earth where God must be considered before the world community
makes their own plans. Anything contrary to what God is doing is bound to
fail! Today, God is preparing the way for the return of Jesus Christ, and
His coming Jewish Kingdom. Nothing can stop God! The Arabs can't stop the
God of the Bible. The antichrist when he comes won't stop God. All the
nations of the world will also be no match when God declares they must bow
to His only begotten Son, or be crushed!
This peace without victory filled with painful
concessions is only destine to lead to an even greater conflict. God is not
caught unprepared by the events soon to transpire as the result of another
false secular peace in the Holy Land. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is His prepared
response to the Islamic world that would oppose a Jewish Kingdom.

FATAH LEAFLETS ACCUSE RASHID, DAHLAN OF
Leading Palestinian Authority figures
and Muhammed Dahlan have been accused
by Fatah militants of "collaboration"
A Fatah leaflet distributed in Jenin this week accused Rashid - top economic
advisor to PLO chief Yasser Arafat and Dahlan the senior PA security commander
in Gaza of conspiring with Israel to
replace Arafat and cancel the UN fact-finding mission to Jenin. The Fatah
leadership in Jenin called on Arafat to reign in his aides.
An earlier Fatah leaflet distributed in Ramallah on April 25 also warned the
"collaborator" Rashid against "leading this corrupt gang that wants to sell our
dreams cheaply. We will not let Rashid enjoy the money that he's stolen from our
peoples' bank accounts." The leaflet demands that Arafat rein in Rashid
"otherwise the people will come and get him."
Similar leaflets in the past preceded
the assassination of Fatah
figures accused of corrupt or betrayal of the Palestinian cause.
BARGHOUTI ADMITS TO PA INVOLVEMENT IN TERROR
Israeli security sources claim that detained Fatah Tanzim militia leader
has begun confessing to directing terrorist attacks against Israelis with

Israel's Shin Bet security agency has been interrogating Barghouti since he was
captured in Ramallah
some two weeks ago. He reportedly has started admitting to his key role
in funding and overseeing Fatah terrorist activities and
also implicated PLO chief Yasser Arafat
in the transfer of funds to Fatah operatives, knowing the money would be used
for terrorist activity.
Arafat won’t reform PA
Palestinian Authority Minister of Parliamentary Affairs
Nabil Amr resigned over the weekend
after PA Chairman Yasser Arafat rejected his demand for major changes in the
cabinet and the Palestinian security apparatus.
Amr demanded that a new cabinet be appointed to manage civil affairs in
the territories. “After Arafat turned down my proposal, I handed in my
resignation and left the meeting at the Mukata in Ramallah,” Amr said.
“Everybody feels that an earthquake has taken place in Palestinian
society. So the changes must be equal in size to what happened,” Amr told
reporters in Ramallah, referring to the IDF military operation.
“I say the change must come from
within the Palestinian Authority,” he added.
These are momentous events taking place
within the Palestinian Authority. I'm afraid these fellows who sowed the wind
helping Arafat to nurture the present Palestinian culture are now about to reap
the whirlwind. I only wonder how many sex kittens if any they will get in
Paradise when their dead bodies turn up? This culture now sown into the very
hearts of their children shows no mercy for even the slightest bit of
compromise. There is no greater sin then to have any other attitude toward a Jew
then to kill him or her. Collaboration with Israel carries the death penalty. No
trial, no mercy, just summery execution, and then party time. There are no
moderate Palestinians only dead ones.
It is hard to feel sorry for these poor
fellows. The very people whom they victimized are now turning on them. Soon,
Arafat will be just like Hitler. Convinced that the Palestinians were just not
good enough for his visions of grandeur when he finds himself all alone, and the
Palestinian people crushed. Everyone loses in the end when sin is allowed to
reach the magnitudes that it has within Palestinian culture. This is not a good
generation into which to be a Palestinian!

than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as
it is this day.

is none else.

Visiting congressmen advise Israel
to resist US administration pressure
A visiting delegation of
US congressmen believes that
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon should
rebuff attempts by the Bush administration for him to deal with Palestinian
Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.
Arafat is a terrorist. He is a leader of the terrorists.
As a matter of fact he is a motivator of terrorism,” said Jim Saxton (R-NJ).
“If I were in [Sharon’s] position, I would find someone else to talk to.”
Another member of the bipartisan team, Joe Hoeffel (D-PA) said America
needed to seek another leader of the

Livnat Tell Saudis to Decide, Peace or War
(IsraelNN.com) Speaking in a Washington press
conference, Minster of Education Limor Livnat stated
Saudi Arabia must decide if it is for
peace or war with Israel.
Livnat was referring to the report being
delivered to US President George W. Bush by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon,
documenting Saudi Arabia paid families
of suicide bombers for the sacrifice made by the terrorists against
Israel. The documents were uncovered by
soldiers during Operation Defensive Shield.
Sharon Pushing No-Arafat Line
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who arrived in
Washington last night, will begin his meetings with a talk today with U.S.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and an appearance at a gathering of the AIPAC
pro-Israel lobby. Sharon will meet with President George Bush tomorrow, and will
attempt to persuade him that Arafat has
no place in the future of the Middle East. The Prime Minister seems to
have an ally in National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice, who said yesterday
that the "current direction of the Palestinians"
under Arafat's leadership does
not allow for the establishment of a
Palestinian state. On the other hand, Secretary of State Colin Powell
said last night that it is "clear to the Administration that
something has to be done" with
the settlements in Judea and Samaria, and that this matter will be raised with
Prime Minister Sharon.
Education Minister Limor Livnat, who is accompanying Prime Minister Sharon in
Washington, will present to her American hosts today an
Israeli Intelligence report showing
Saudi Arabian support for Hamas and other suicide terrorist elements. The
report is based on documents found by Israeli forces during Operation Defensive
Shield. Bush hosted Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah in his Texas ranch two weeks
ago, and it is widely assumed that the
"peace plan" Bush will propose to Sharon is based on
A European Union spokesman said
today that the EU is relating "with the
utmost gravity" to Israeli accusations and
documentation that Arafat used European
donations for terrorist purposes.
Any peace plan based on a Palestinian
State is absolutely wrong from a Biblical perspective. Attempting to appease the
Palestinians for their releasing of those beastly animals who's vicious behavior
they glorify is absolutely wrong from a moral perspective. We just as well
glorify the homosexual pedophile priests of the Catholic Church as reward
Palestinian culture as it presently exists. When a culture degrades to such
animalistic behavior so thoroughly documented, it is not time to talk peace or
peacekeepers, but rather time to talk about caging the wild animals and
The deceitfully subtle Saudis are the
worst in my opinion. I only envision what God has to say about the end of
Babylon in Revelation as indicative of how true righteousness views their
behavior. The Saudi sheiks also well documented for their personal immorality
buy their way into respectability. They see themselves as the masters of
manipulative bargaining. They use the poor only for their advantage. They pay
the beastly animals to terrorize the Jews while they sit in the lap of luxury on
their thrones of vanity. They keep themselves removed from the violence while
they are truly the backer/motivators of the violence. They hold up hands
full of money to the gullible world, but God sees the blood of innocent Jews
that covers them.
The coming Kingdom will set straight
the corruption money has bought. Dispensational change is what the Bible
says is in the news these days. It is starting with Israel!
How does the world react to God forcing
His will on all governments, and all religions? What will be the eternal cry
from those being tormented forever and ever?
"And men blasphemed God"
8And there followed another angel, saying,
Babylon is fallen, is fallen,
that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath
of her fornication.
9And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man
worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or
in his hand,
10The same shall drink
of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented
with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the
presence of the Lamb:
11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and
they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image,
and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the
nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to
give unto her the cup of
the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the
weight of a talent:
and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for
the plague thereof was exceeding great.

ARAFAT DRAGS OUT TALKS ON BETHLEHEM STANDOFF
Reports of an imminent breakthrough in the standoff at Bethlehem's Church of the
Nativity on Monday were premature, as PLO chief Yasser
Arafat withheld his approval of
an agreement over how to deal with some 40 Palestinian gunmen holed up in the
landmark Christian shrine. ...
Only a few blocks away from Manger Square, IDF soldiers on
Saturday investigated an explosion in a
house and discovered a bomb factory in an apartment used as a clinic.
Among the finds were a bomb ready for use, components for making explosive
devices and inflammatory documents.
On Sunday, the IDF withdrew two tanks from Manger Square, and a wanted Hamas
gunman surrendered to soldiers after being holed up in the Church. Israeli
forces also searched the home of one of the
Palestinian negotiators, Salah
Ta'amri, and found a stockpile of
weapons, large amounts of ammunition, IDF
uniforms and gas masks.
In related news, the Jerusalem Post on Sunday cited two unidentified Bethlehem
clerics as saying fellow Christian
clergy taking part in the behind-the-scenes negotiations have been
involved in a cover-up of what is
really happening inside the Church.
One claimed, "It is not true that all
clergymen are staying in the church of their own free will and that
everyone inside is getting along... the Christians... don't dare to speak up.
They are cowards."
A second Bethlehem priest quoted by the Post said, "We [Christians] are a small
minority with little rights left, so it's obvious you have to be cautious with
what you say. But I would have preferred silence rather than saying that
everything is okay. We are worse than
cowards, we are lying."
Local Catholic clergy have been the
strongest in defending the Palestinian gunmen, insisting they were
"welcomed" into the Church and
those churchmen who remain inside are there voluntarily based on a tradition not
to abandon a holy site.
But several clerics and Palestinians youths who have managed to get out have
said the gunmen have been threatening
those inside at gunpoint and were
vandalizing church property. CNN reported today that one Palestinian
source confirmed extensive damage has
been done to the interior of the historic church.
Know that these Christian clergy that
welcome the terrorists are professing Christians, and not saved possessing
Christians. They hate the Jews so much that they willingly excuse the
destruction done to the Church by these Arabs as a reasonable response against
the occupying Jews. Blame the Jews is all they care to know. It was these kinds
of professing Christians who burned the Jews alive in their Synagogues during
the crusades, and sided with the Nazis in more recent history. They are still
around. Hangovers from a bygone era that still have power and influence within
the Roman Catholic system. The Pope echoes their sentiments when he called, and
encouraged them by phone just last week. Their false theology can't bare a
literal Israel in control of the Holy Land. They have taught for generations
that everywhere the Bible teaches future blessings for Israel that it really is
saying those future blessings are for the Roman Catholic Church. It is plain and
simple usurping of those clear teachings. It becomes very difficult to say God
is going to bless Rome in the last days when the Bible says Israel, and a
literal Israel is clearly gaining more and more control of the Holy Land. Rome
has always thought it would control Jerusalem in the end when Christ returns.
The Jews in control can only raise the anger of those who put their Catholicism
before the Biblical Christ!
It should be no wonder that God is
putting the birth place of His Only Begotten Son so prominently in the news
today. The Church of Nativity has revealed the Palestinian culture for what it
really is as a force of death and destruction. The
Church of Nativity also reveals the truth of how great is the hatred of the Jews
by many of the Roman Catholic clergy.
The issue is to whom will God focus His
attention when the Kingdom is established? Will it be those who teach Covenant
Theology like the Romans, and usurp all the future glory promised to Jerusalem
and the Jews? Or, will it be literally the ones that the Bible says it will be?
Today's news says the Jews are miraculously back after almost 2000 years. The
same Jews who were told the Kingdom is at hand when Christ came the first time
have returned for His second coming. Today's news seems to favor the Jews!
18But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for,
behold, I create
Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the
voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not
filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner
being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards,
and eat the fruit of them.
22They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another
eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall
long enjoy the work of their hands.
23They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the
seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
24And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while
they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw
like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor
destroy in all my holy
mountain, saith the LORD.
2And it shall come to
pass in the last days, that the mountain of
the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains,
and shall be exalted above the hills; and all
nations shall flow unto it.
3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain
of the LORD, to the house of the
God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and
we will walk in his paths: for out of
Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the
LORD from Jerusalem.
4And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and
they shall beat their
swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not
lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5O house of Jacob,
come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
Dear Friend of Israel:
Yom Yerushalayim Sameach!
Happy Jerusalem Day!
Thirty-five years ago, a day after the Israel Independence Day parade in
1967, Egypt put itself on a war footing. Syria promised to support its ally.
Egyptian forces then closed the Strait of Tiran, blocking the country's access
to the Red Sea.
The country realized it was in a fight for its life. Hostile enemies on all
of our borders were closing in. Leaders of Arab governments were calling for the
In a lightning-fast but brutal six days the Israeli Defense Forces swept out
the invaders and expanded the country's boundaries. Central to the battles was
the fight to reunify Jerusalem under Israeli and Jewish rule. The 19-year-old
stake through the heart of the city that kept Jews from the Old City and the
Western Wall was quickly torn down, and a joyous reunification occurred.
Jerusalem Day muted this year
After more than 18 months of
violence, during which Jerusalem has served as the epicenter of
Palestinian terror attacks, the city is just starting to recover and shake
itself free from a wave of terror unprecedented since 1967. ...
Jerusalem suffers from more than just terror attacks and muted
consumerism. Approximately 17,500
residents moved away last year, compared to 17,100 the previous year.
The city's population is 660,000,
32% of whom are Arabs. ...
The number of residents who moved away last year was virtually unchanged
compared to 2000, even though more
people left the city than moved into it for the 14th consecutive year.
Israeli governments have long talked of
Jerusalem as Israel's capital,
but have done everything to weaken
it, Olmert charged in a recent interview with The Jerusalem Post. He
cited incentives offered to young couples to settle in MaÕaleh Adumim or
Modi'in, compared to those buying apartments in outlying Jerusalem
neighborhoods like Pisgat Ze'ev or Neveh Ya'acov.
Instead of encouraging young people to stay in the city, the government,
by offering them incentives to buy outside of the city, did everything to
encourage them to leave, he said.
13Sanctify the LORD of hosts
himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for
a stone of stumbling
and for a rock of offence
to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants
15And many among them shall
stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

Deadly Blast in Israel, Diplomacy in D.C.
Suicide Bomber Strikes Near Tel Aviv as Sharon
Met With Bush
— A suicide bomber struck a
pool hall in Israel today,
killing at least 16 people, at the same time that Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon met with President Bush in Washington.
Sharon, who was expected to stay and meet with other U.S. officials over
the next several days, cut short his
visit after word of the bombing. "Israel will not surrender to
blackmail," Sharon told reporters before leaving Washington. "He who rises
up to kill us, we will pre-empt it and kill him first."
The attack came in the town of Rishon Letzion, a suburb 10 miles south of
Tel Aviv, when a person set off explosives
filled with nails, police
said. At least 60 people were
injured and many teenagers are believed to be among the casualties.
The Islamic militant group Hamas
claimed responsibility. A Hamas leader in Gaza told ABCNEWS the
bombing was a message to Israelis that the Palestinian will to resist has
not been broken.
The attack was the first suicide bombing in Israel in three weeks. It was
the first since Israel began "Operation Defensive Shield" — a series of
incursions into Palestinian territories designed to prevent terror attacks.
chastises Israel 74-4
By William M. Reilly
Published 5/7/2002 11:02
UNITED NATIONS, May 7 (UPI) -- With 54 nations abstaining as a protest
over what they called an imbalanced resolution, the U.N. General Assembly on
Tuesday condemned by 74-4 vote
Israel's West Bank offensive.
The resolution also criticized Israel's
failure to cooperate with
Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Jenin refugee camp fact-finding team
and calls for his own report on Jenin.
It will end when a new leadership
faction in Israel separates itself from the world, and unto God. It will end when Jews begin returning
to the God of the Bible. It will end when events described in Ezekiel 38 & 39
turn the eyes of the world from Islam, and onto the God of the Bible! It will
end when a remnant out of Israel begins to build the Biblical Third Jewish
Temple on the Temple Mount. It will end when the God of Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob establishes His Kingdom! The Bible says change will happen to these
stiff-necked Jews through great tribulation, but it will happen! A new heart of
humility, love, and compassion for a world lost in sin, and without the true God
of the Bible. Yet, a new heart set like flint to accomplish God's future plan
for this world through the coming Jewish Kingdom.
God has a plan that has nothing to do
with freedom, democracy, or human rights. It has everything to do with His
determined plan as revealed in the Bible backed by His irresistible power. Even
Israel has no say in what God is doing with them in the Holy Land. It matters
not that the nations of the world will resist to the death God's plan for the
future of mankind. The final victory will be God's.
The coming Kingdom means judgment on
sin. All who refuse the forgiveness offered by the Lord Jesus Christ will find
the wrath of the lamb as their just punishment. Islamic, Jew, apostate Christian
are all without rights! They are criminals condemned already! There is no greater sin then to walk away from the
sacrificially shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. God has declared this human
right will bring only eternal condemnation without reprieve.
Palestinian rights become meaningless
when God works His plan in the Holy Land. Islamic rights become of no account.
Religious rights of any color, or any rights whatsoever become nothing when God the
creator demands His rights! Mercy to lost sinners is a wondrous thing, but mercy
rejected is without excuse!
"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will
27Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob;
look not unto the
stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:
28Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the LORD
was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and because
he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the wilderness.
29Yet they are
thy people and thine inheritance, which thou
broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm.
John 3:18, 19
18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but
he that believeth not is condemned
already, because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God.
19And this is
the condemnation, that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
33He that hath
received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
34For he whom God hath
sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by
measure unto him.

and he that believeth not
the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Muslim world, report finds
NEW YORK – Anti-Semitism in newspapers and on TV in the
Muslim world is increasing in
content and virulence, according to a study released this week by the
American Jewish Committee.
“Muslim Anti-Semitism: A Clear and Present Danger,” authored by Hebrew
University professor Robert Wistrich, details the anti-Jewish and
anti-Israel rhetoric that has seeped into the
Arab and Muslim press and
outlines the effect such
institutionalized hatred could have on prospects for peace in the region.
With sections on conspiracy theories, Islamic fascism, anti-Semitic
falsehoods, Holocaust denial,
refusal to accept Israel’s existence, and the history of
Muslim-Jewish relations, the study looks at the allegation that
Jews use the blood of non-Jews to
make Passover matza and Purim pastries; the widespread popularity of
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion; and the charge that the Israeli
government and the Mossad were
responsible for the September 11 attacks in the US.
The study, which includes a selection of cartoons from the Arab press
that shows Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon gleefully eating Palestinian children in the Palestinian Al-Quds
daily, and an Israeli soldier
presenting his mother with a bottle of Palestinian blood in the
Jordanian paper Al-Dustour, also looks at
Western media’s reluctance to report
on Muslim anti-Semitism

Iraq and Iran
may initiate a partial or full-scale
war against Israel in the coming months to torpedo an anticipated

Thirty five years and waiting. That is how long Israel
was given the opportunity to build the Third Jewish Temple on the Temple
Mount, but has procrastinated. Another five years, and an entire generation will
have passed by this responsibility. There is only one purpose for which God has
brought the Jews back to the Promised Land. That is to bring in the next
Biblical dispensation of the Kingdom. The Jewish Temple has, and always will be
center to any Jewish Kingdom. Nothing can happen until the next Temple is built.
Everything happening in the Middle East that has put it in the headlines
throughout the entire world is aimed at the next step Israel must take. The
world knows it is coming! That is the declaration that they are going to build
The world is ready to turn itself upside-down when the
announcement comes. The Islamic world more then all others is sworn to stop
Israel at all costs. According to Ezekiel 38 & 39 the cost will be the utter
destruction of Islam on the mountains and fields in the land of Israel. Iran and
Iraq are specifically mentioned by their historic title of Old Persia. They will
be the great Eastern arm of a three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel. The
concerns of a war possibly only months away has great Biblical implications.
There can be no doubt the hatred of Islam against the Jew is monstrous.
The holocaust would be child's play were Islam ever to inflict its desires on
Israel. It is the hate that God will judge, and on that basis destroy Islam
forever. After Ezekiel 39 Islam will go the way of all the other great powers of
the past that allowed hate to rule their cultures. The most recent example is
the Third Reich Nazis under Hitler. History is about to be repeated once again.
This time it will be Islam that will go to the dung heap!
It will not be long thereafter that the entire world
will follow Islam to the same dung heap as it rejects the coming Jewish Kingdom
of the returning Lord Jesus Christ! Jerusalem is where Christ ascended up to
heaven, and Jerusalem is where the Bible says Christ will return!
9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and
a cloud received him out of their sight.

11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like
manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the
mount of Olives,
which is before Jerusalem

It is 6:20 AM, and this has been going on all night! It
is not planed or organized. The crowds of Jews just keep coming. They are
responding to something from their hearts. It has to do with Yom Yerushalem
(Jerusalem Day). These crowds are just unprecedented. The hearts of Jews
are responding to 35 years of neglect. The tribulations of the day has brought
about this heart attitude. The Temple Mount is on the other side of the Wailing
Wall. It now seems so possible that were a true prophet (or two) of God to
come calling for the building of the Third Jewish Temple that this generation
would be up to the task.

MAY HAVE NUKE
Turkey's intelligence service believes the regime of Iraqi dictator Saddam
Hussein has successfully produced a nuclear device.
The assessment was reported this week by Geostrategy-Direct,
which cited a Turkish military officer. The report adds that US intelligence
officials say the new intelligence was obtained in early March and adds to a
growing body of intelligence on Saddam's efforts to produce nuclear arms.
No details of the type of nuclear weapon were disclosed, but Iraq is believed to
be developing a uranium-fueled nuclear device. A senior defense official said
the threat from Saddam's chemical, biological and nuclear programs continues to
grow, and the most worrying is his "energetic nuclear weapons program."
According to an Iraqi nuclear engineer who defected in 1996, Iraq switched from
a plutonium-based nuclear arms program to one based on enriched uranium, which
can produced from natural uranium mined in Iraq. Iraq has some 400 locations -
many based in schools, mosques, hospitals and warehouses - where it producing
nuclear weapons and related material, making
UN inspections in a search for those programs nearly impossible.
US Secretary of State Colin Powell said on May 5 that Saddam is "working
feverishly" on nuclear weapons but had not made any recent breakthroughs in his
Last week, UN Secretary General
said progress had been made in resuming weapons inspection in Iraq. But Baghdad
wants the inspections linked to an end to US efforts to topple Saddam and Allied
patrols of "no-fly" zones.
Reports such as this are always questionable, but time
often proves there is truth behind the scenes. All the recent activity by the
Bush administration dealing with an invasion of Iraq causes me to think they
know something that has not gone public yet? Should it be true that Saddam has
the Islamic bomb, who would doubt he would long restrain from using it to mass
murder Jews? The Middle East has now become as hot as what the world experienced
when Hitler came on the scene. A crises is upon us of world wide scope. This
time it is the Holy Land at the center. This time God will act by
bringing in the next dispensation of the Kingdom.
The super weapons of the last war brought great fear
upon the world accelerating the efforts to crush the nazis before they could be
developed. Today, technology has caught up with the world. Now, the most insane
of despots sitting on a throne in the middle of the desert can bring the
world to its knees. The control is gone. The technology has been released with
the computer age. It is time for God to act, and act He will.
God is never taken by surprise as human history
unfolds. Wise men see God in absolute control. The Bible reveals clearly what
God is doing. The next Biblical event is a dispensational change. The Old
Testament from Genesis 12 forward reveals how God controlled all things through
His dealings with Israel. The pyramid building Egyptians thought they were in
control. The Pagan Assyrians thought it was them. Then came the Babylonians,
Persians, Medes, Greeks, and Romans. They are all gone now, but the Jew remains.
Nothing caught God by surprise! The dispensation ended with the coming of Christ
and the New Testament when God shifted His control of the world on behalf of the Christian Church. God
never abandoned the Jews as a people though they are blind today. Individual Jews
were drawn to Christ, but blindness characterized this present dispensation for
the Jew. It is all about to change again! It is going to change with the Second
coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is coming to a Jewish Kingdom that will
control the world throughout the next dispensation from Jerusalem and the Temple
Mount! He is coming at a time when the Bible says knowledge shall
be increased! The age of technology has come; The computer age is here!
The time of the end is upon us!
12:1And at that time
shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of
thy people: and there shall be
a time of trouble,
such as never was since there was a nation even to that same
time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that
shall be found written in the book.
2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
some to everlasting life,
and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament;
and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even
time of the end:

Iran defends nukes
Iranian military forces recently moved additional air defense missiles to a key
nuclear facility in what U.S. intelligence officials view as
a sign Tehran is preparing for an attack.
Several batteries of Iran's U.S.-made improved Hawk missiles, known as
I-Hawks, were added to defenses ringing Iran's Bushehr nuclear facility and were
photographed late last month by a U.S. spy satellite. Iran has about 150
The Bushehr nuclear power plant is located 10 miles south of the city of
Bushehr and has been under construction since the 1970s. Russia has been the
main supplier of the equipment for the two reactors.
CIA nonproliferation officials have told Congress that Iran is actively
pursuing the acquisition of fissile material and the expertise and
technology necessary to form the
material into nuclear weapons. The weapons are
based on both plutonium and highly
enriched uranium nuclear arms, according to the agency.

Likud Expected To Nix PLO State
The Likud Central Committee will convene on Sunday in Tel
Aviv, and polls show strong support for
a resolution negating the establishment of any form of a Palestinian state.
A decision of this nature will be a strong blow to Prime Minister Sharon, who
has come out in favor several times of a restricted PA state. Sharon has hinted
that the Likud decision would not greatly affect his policies. Minister Danny
Naveh, however, speaking with Arutz-7 earlier this week, said that Sharon would
have "trouble" ignoring such a decision.
The world has decided a Palestinian State
in the middle of Israel is the only path to peace. The Bush administration has
assumed a Palestinian State is a done deal. It seems Israel does not see things
in the same way. The assumption was Israel would give the Palestinians Land, and
a State for just a hand shake? Israel seems to understand the Palestinians are
not to be trusted. Israel is not as foolish as the world thinks it should be. A
popular song in Israel has Arafat singing "give me all your land,
and I will shake your hand." Arafat is looking for fools to shake his
hand while he gives nothing, but rhetoric in return. He has found many fools
among the world leaders. Peace talk is cheap when the Palestinians are not
living in your house.
I'm sure in time the world is going to realize Sharon
is no fool. I think he knew all along the Likud would never agree to a
Palestinian State. It was not out of hate, but wisdom that he played the game. He suggested such a State to appease the world much as Arafat does when he
claims he is reigning in terror. All know Arafat's hate is far too great to do
anything other then lie where Israel is concerned. It seems Sharon was wisely
shaking hands with world leaders while knowing there would be no land for the
I don't know if world pressure will overpower Israeli
resistance, but I do know a Palestinian State in the middle of Israel is wrong!
It is wrong most importantly from a Biblical perspective. God has no intention
of sharing His Kingdom with the heathen. They must go, or convert. There is no
other plan. Biblical Judaism is all God will tolerate in the Holy Land when the
Kingdom comes. All must submit to Christ the King including Sharon if he wants
16The LORD is King for ever and ever:
the heathen are perished out of his land.
25Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel
from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in
them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I
have given to my servant Jacob.
26And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant
vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when
I have executed judgments
upon all those that despise them
round about them;
and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.
8Ask of me, and I
shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the
uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces
like a potter's vessel.
19Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail:
let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be
but men. Selah.
43Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made
me the head of the
heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
44As soon as they hear of me,
they shall obey me:
the strangers shall
submit themselves unto me.
45The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

BILL BRIGHT’S ‘BEYOND ALL LIMITS’
CONFERENCE, ‘GLOBAL PASTORS NETWORK’, ‘SYNERGISTIC CHURCH’—Dennis
Costella has a good firsthand report of the
Beyond All Limits pastor’s
conference which convened in Orlando, Jan. 17-19 (Foundation). Campus
Crusade’s Bill Bright had the vision for this. The purpose was twofold:
first, to minister to the 5,000 pastors assembled at First Baptist Church
and second, to launch a new Internet program for training pastors for the
new millennium, the Global Pastors Network. The ambitious plan to network
(join together in common fellowship, ministry and purpose) and instruct
virtually every Christian worker in the world by way of the Internet and
satellite technology in the decade ahead was impressive. The proposed global
synergistic church model, an ecumenically-styled network of churches and
doctrinal issues are set aside
and all who say they love Jesus will join together to reach the world for
Christ. Many messages were helpful and Biblically-based. Speakers included
Drs. Falwell, Stowell, Smalley, Warren, Trask, and Merritt.
Charismatics were well represented
by Hayford, and PK’s Bill McCartney who stressed the need for no divisions
to exist between all Christians. The above speakers and the following other
ministries are part of 200 already committed to the GPN. Kay Arthur, Henry
Blackaby, Bill Bright, Chuck Colson, Jim Cymbala, James Dobson, John Hagee,
David Jeremiah, John Kilpatrick, Erwin Lutzer, Chuck Swindoll, and Bruce
Wilkinson. A conference leader said: In the future,
those [pastors] who are not
networking will not be working.
While God is preparing the Jews and Israel for the
coming Kingdom, the apostate Christian Church is preparing also. The whole
purpose for which God gave us the Bible is so that doctrine would be fixed. Once
written it would stand forever as an unchangeable testimony of who God is, and
what He expects from man. Doctrine separates by design. Any who would drift from
absolute truth would be corrected once the Bible was examined. In order for the
unity of "Beyond All Limits" to work, Bible doctrine must be abandoned. That is
exactly what they boldly say: "doctrinal
issues are set aside!"
When they set aside the doctrine that
separates, they abandon the Bible. There is no single verse, or group of verses
that can be separated from the Bible (even
"for love of Jesus").
The value of the Bible as God gave it to mankind is in its totality. A Readers
Digest version would mean God carelessly added useless information. I would
accuse the above mentioned pastors as guilty of carelessness with the Bible
before I would accuse God!
Christianity in the Great Tribulation will certainly be forced to dismantle the
Bible. A complete Bible as we have today would rip apart the apostasy of that
day. Liberals would be revealed as blasphemers when their views of Christ would
be compared. Charismatics would be exposed as the liars they are when their
phony signs and miracles would be placed alongside the Biblical ones. The
Evangelicals of today are intent on laying the foundation for the Great Whore of
the Revelation. The hijacking of being born again would end today were doctrine
allowed to separate out all that which has drifted from the truth.
The reason why
the Jews are back in the Holy Land, and God is preparing for the coming Kingdom
is because Christianity has failed. When there is no Bible; When there is no
doctrine; Then there is no born again either. It all becomes
vanity when men abandon the testimony of God! The love of Jesus will not
be abandoned in the apostate Church of the Great Tribulation, but it will all be
2O ye sons of men, how long will ye
turn my glory into shame? how long will ye
and seek after leasing? Selah.
3But know that the
LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will
hear when I call unto him.
2They speak vanity
every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double
heart do they speak.
3The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that
speaketh proud things:
4Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own:
who is lord over us?
17:1And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked
with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of
the great whore
that sitteth upon many waters:
2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the
inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

fruits ye shall know them.
Pat Robertson Sells
Racehorses After Controversy
-- Pat Robertson will divest himself of horse racing interests following
criticism from supporters who questioned the religious broadcaster's
involvement in a sport that promotes gambling.
"I am sorry that my fondness for the performance of equine athletes has
caused you an offense,"
he wrote in a reply sent to supporters of his ministries at the 700 Club and
the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Robertson, who owns a two-year-old colt named "Mr. Pat" came under fire
following a report in The New York Times. The report outlined financial
involvement in horse racing -- to the tune of more than
Robertson contends that he was
only interested in the competition among
horses and not gambling. In the letter, the broadcaster told supporters that
he used to race horses as a child and said
"none of this brought any sense of
embarrassment to me because I felt then, and feel now, there is
with contests of skill, either between human athletes or equine athletes."
"He wants to be
so he'll do whatever he has to do," Angell Watts, spokeswoman for the
Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach told the Associated Press.
Christianity is not the same anymore! Imagine Hudson
Taylor, or George Muller amassing multi-million dollar personal fortunes, and
setting up a forever family estate by selling parts of their Christian
ministries? Picture David Livingstone frequenting the Casinos along the African
coasts saying he is only interested in the gaming competition not the sinful
part of the hobby? The Bible says you will know them by their fruits! The
Charismatics have chosen their leaders by their fruits. Doctrine has been
abandoned for numbers and success. We all remember the Bakkers and Swagards. The
wise knew Robertson was of the same class just more subtle then the others.
sorry that my fondness for the performance of equine athletes has caused you an
of today will accept such an explanation with hardly a shudder. Most will
probably not even understand what the hub-bub is all about? They would only wish
they were as blessed with similar success. Robertson shrugs it off as just some
jealous sticks in the mud who will bend to the pressure of his views over time.
His success is the fruit that will cover whatever Bible doctrine says. Success
covers over an air-conditioned dog house, or a half million dollar tongue in
cheek hobby. Only the most open illicit sex seems to be out of bounds for
The doctrine (really the abandonment of doctrine) of
the Charismatics is what caused it to take the lead in the main stream of
today's Christianity. It is the acceptability of this kind of Christianity that
makes it the fastest growing part of the modern Christian Church. It is this style of
Christianity that will be left behind when the doctrinally correct Biblical
rapture occurs. All the success will have proven to be nothing more then vanity
on that day, and the billions who support it will turn on the God of the Bible
who will abandon them as they did Him! Actually, they never submitted to His
righteousness in the first place! The Church of all those who taught, and
believed that they must keep a salvation of vanity by their own works will find the hijacked born
again philosophy of their profession valueless. Only true Biblical possessors of
Christ will find their born again experience secured by Christ will gain eternal
The rapture is not for the apostate Church! It is why
the Jews are back in the Holy Land. It is why dispensational change is imminent!
The coming Kingdom will be based on Biblical righteousness as always taught in
The vanity of success has little influence with God!
The defiant heart will always lose in the end! The difference between true
repentance, and being sorry you were exposed should be clear.

8So when they had gone through all the land, they came to Jerusalem at
the end of nine months and twenty days.
9And Joab gave up the sum of the number of the people unto the king: and
there were in Israel eight hundred thousand valiant men that drew the sword; and
the men of Judah were five hundred thousand men.
10And David's heart
smote him after that he had numbered the people. And
David said unto the LORD,
I have sinned greatly in that I have
done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity
of thy servant; for I
have done very foolishly.
11For when David was up in the morning, the word of the LORD came unto the
prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,
12Go and say unto David, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things; choose
thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.
2 Sam 24:16-17
16And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it,
the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the
people, It is enough:
stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD was by the threshingplace
of Araunah the Jebusite.

Netanyahu: I will defang PA state threat
Former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed confidence
yesterday that he will succeed in convincing both the nation and the government
not to permit the establishment of a
The Future Political Direction of Secular Israel
In his lengthy address, Netanyahu
warned that even after Arafat, a
Palestinian state would threaten Israel, and suggested
granting the Palestinians autonomy
"Self-rule, yes; Palestinian state, no,"
Netanyahu said. "The biggest mistake we can make is rewarding terror by giving
it a state of its own."
Netanyahu called Sharon's effort
to stop terror in Operation Defensive
Shield "incomplete," and urged the
thorough destruction of the Palestinian
Authority's terror infrastructure, the building of
a defensive barrier between Israel and
the PA, and the exile of Arafat from the region.
In the wake of the Likud infighting, Labor party chairman and Defense Minister
Binyamin Ben-Eliezer hinted that last night's vote could be used as an excuse to
leave the government. "If it becomes clear that from today the government is
being [lead] according to the Likud central committee policy when we say yes to
a Palestinian state, we will have to draw our own conclusions." Ben-Eliezer
added that the Likud decision means that Palestinian violence will continue
However, fellow Laborite and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said that while the
vote was "tragic for the state of Israel," it should not be taken too seriously.
He said as long as the government is acting on behalf of achieving a two state
solution, Labor will have a place in it.
Peres told Army Radio today, "I understand that this is a battle for power, but
I am convinced that if Netanyahu is
elected, he will be as he was before previous elections, he was in favor of Oslo
and he shook Arafat's hand."
It may be the Godless politics of men, but God is
always in control whether men acknowledge His presents or not. I know the
Land is God's, and not the politicians! God has stated clearly He will not share
it with any other then His chosen people. A Palestinian State may be formed, but
it will never last! Men always think they are masters of their own destiny, but
in the end wise men see the hand of God controlling everything. Bible prophecy
fulfilled is proof enough God is in control.
The next event in Biblical prophecy is the
rapture of the Church. It will include only possessors of Christ, and not the
professors of vanity. Only those with a real born again experience will be taken
up to heaven. All the hypocrites who through their own vanity professed they
were Christians will be left behind. The vanity of the Roman Catholic who must
have the magical powers of a corrupted priesthood, and the mystical powers
entrusted to the mother of god will find the vanity of their faith worthless.
The same holds true for all the Charismatics who follow Rome into the vanities
of false mystical powers. The Liberal Church will be almost unscathed by the
rapture. Even many of the Baptists who desired the worldly compromise of
Evangelicalism that pushed Fundamentalism to the fringes of acceptability will
find the vanity of a false faith was behind their motivations. I fully expect
there will be a Southern Baptist Convention the year after the rapture. I expect
the world will take little note of the rapture. It didn't take much note of
Christ, and all the miracles He did when He came the first time. I doubt it will
pay much attention when the next dispensational change takes place? What the
world will note is what will be happening in Israel. It is there that God will
focus His attention as He brings in the Kingdom age. It is there that I watch as
God prepares the world to fit His prepared plan for the future glory of Israel.
It is there that today's news can't ignore.
2:1the word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2And it shall come to pass
in the last days, that
the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the

all nations shall flow unto it.

mountain of the LORD, to
the house of the God of Jacob;
and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for
out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of
the LORD from Jerusalem.

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their
spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither
shall they learn war any more.

mountain of the LORD, and

shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their
spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.

none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of
hosts hath spoken it.

will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the
LORD our God for ever and ever.

Birthday of the Bible
The Day the Torah was given
-- celebrating the monumental encounter between God and the Israelites at
an event which changed mankind forever
Shavuot is the anniversary of the defining moment of Jewish history: the
giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai 3,000 years ago.
The Shavuot holiday begins Thursday evening, May 16, and continues until
Saturday evening, May 18, 2002. (In Israel, ends Friday evening, May 17 .)
At sunset tonight the Jewish people begin celebrating
Shavuot. Christians should take pause as this is also the celebration of the
birthday of the Bible. Though the Bible covers all eternity, the first words to
be officially written down as Biblical text occurred when God wrote the 10
Commandments on the tablets of stone. God, through divine revelation caused some
40 different authors to continue the work from Shavuot until the apostle John
wrote the last words of the Revelation in 95 AD. All these words have been
faithfully passed down from one generation to the next so that today we have a
faithful testimony of who God is, and what He expects of His people.
This is also a special time for the Golden Calf web
site because while Mosses was receiving the law up on Mount Sinai the children
below made the golden calf. God's people are a sorry lot, and it is amazing that
He loves us as He does. How thankful I am for the Bible that reveals absolute
Today, the workers of silver and gold like Pat
Robertson, and many. many others distort and cheapen by false claims to divine
revelation the miracle of the Bible. The work below continues along with the
divine testimony from above. According to the Bible we are almost at the end of
this present dispensation of the Christian Church. A Great Apostate Church is
already formed ready to go into condemnation when the rapture occurs. God is
this very day preparing for the future glory of Israel, Jerusalem, and the Holy
Temple Mount when the next dispensation of the Kingdom comes. How sad that most
born again believers sleep while the world remains ignorant of the
miraculous Biblical events about to transpire!
My goal is to be a testimony to this generation through
the Golden Calf. It is a small voice in a big world, but I intend to continue
until the rapture.

The Temple Mount Sell Out!
Barak, Ramon, And Ben-Eliezer Outline
New/old diplomatic initiatives were presented in the Labor
Party Central Committee meeting today. Party Chairman Binyamin Ben-Eliezer,
Israel's Defense Minister, went the furthest, saying
he would be
willing to give up Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest
site. MK Chaim Ramon, who plans to run for the party
leadership in the next election, appeared to differ with Ben-Eliezer in
strategy, not substance, by saying that there is no point in offering plans at
this point "when there is no one on the other side with whom to negotiate."
However, Ramon said that we must unilaterally withdraw from Gaza immediately.
The coming election in Israel is heating up with
political extremism. Ben-Elieser is willing to sell out the Temple Mount for a
political peace that will never happen. The struggle for political control of
the nation Israel has moved into the desperate category. It seems this
coming election will be all or nothing. On one hand there is Bebe ready to coral
the Palestinian Arabs without Arafat, and on the other the great sell out for a
hand shake. I really don't think it makes a difference which party wins. The
Lord of Hosts will override the political system whenever He is ready. The Bible
says a secular Israel will continue to the very end of the Great Tribulation.
Many Jews (and some Gentile strangers) will come over
to the restored Biblical Judaism led by the Two witnesses and 144,000 Jewish
converts as the Great Tribulation proceeds, but secular Judaism will continue
side by side as Judah and Israel existed after the reign of Solemn.
The Bible speaks to Antiochus Epiphanies (the king of
the North) as an example of the coming antichrist. He led the Greek Seleucid
empire of Syria over the Greek Southern Ptolemy empire of Egypt where there is a
connection to Anthony and Cleopatra (last of the Ptolemies) in the
Biblical account of Daniel. The Jewish history book of the Maccabees relates how
a secular Israel tried to compromise for peace with Antiochus. It didn't work!
Soon, another Jew (the idol shepherd) will lead secular
Israel during the Great Tribulation into compromise with the real antichrist. It
also will not work! Many secular Jews will be corrupted by flatteries as happens
again and again.
17Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be
upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and
his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
It is not uncommon to find a near, literal view combined with a far, typical
view within the scope of a particular prophecy.

15So the king of the
north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most
fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither
his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.
16But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none
shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land,
which by his hand shall be consumed.
28Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall
be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his
29At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but
it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
30For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be
grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so
shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that
forsake the holy covenant.
31And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary
of strength, and shall
take away the daily sacrifice,
and they shall place
the abomination that maketh desolate.
32And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he
corrupt by flatteries:
but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they
shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many
shall cleave to them with flatteries.
35And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge,
and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a
36And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall
exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous
things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be
accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

nor regard any god: for
he shall magnify himself above all.

P.A. Arabs Have Not Given Up Terror
anti-terrorism efforts continue without a break. Two Islamic Jihad
would-be suicide terrorists were
stopped last night - one was killed - by IDF troops in northern Ramallah. The
two had planned to carry out a
double-attack in Jerusalem, and one of them led the Israelis to the spot
in which he had hidden his explosives vest... The IDF ended its overnight
mini-offensive in Talousa, near Shechem late this morning, after arresting 17
terrorist suspects. One of them was caught with a bomb in his hand... A
member of PLO leader Yasser Arafat’s
personal militia, Force 17, was killed last night in undercover army
operations in Bitunia, near Ramallah. A second Force 17 terrorist was shot and
arrested in the same incident...
The news media reports Arafat as if he is a changed
man. The facts indicate it is still the same old Arafat. He gets away with his
forked tongue diplomacy because the facts are left out of the reporting by most
of the international press corps. A double portion for them is what God says -
18And first I will
recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because
they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the
carcases of their detestable and abominable things.
20They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such
as are upright in their way are his delight.

Another wicked and adulteress generation is here to
usher in the Second Coming of Christ as did His First coming! A sleepy
generation of the born again Church let "born again" get hijacked by the
apostates. Every crooked huckster mostly among the Charismatics has found
Television Evangelism, and "born again" as the greatest milk cow to have ever
come down the path. Born again Christianity has been turned into nothing more
then vanity by this flood of phony signs and miracles workers. They have taken a
lesson from the apostate Roman Catholic Church with its supermen priesthood, its
mystical holy shrines, its miracle working dead saints, and all the other
unbiblical traditions that appeal to the gullible looking for the supernatural
apart from the Bible. The Charismatics of today have taken all those lessons to
new heights of shame. Vanity has hit new heights as most of these deceptive
wolves in sheep's clothing really believe they have the power!
A generation of apostate Christianity is here right now
unopposed by the Evangelicalism of today who's personal vanity exceeds that of
even Yasser Arafat's visions of being the Islamic Messianic redeemer of
Jerusalem. They really believe they have the power of the Holy Ghost at their
command. Their vanity has no bounds as they replace simple faith in Christ with
mystical manifestations of ecstatic utterances. They must have the magic of man
that in no way is connected to Biblical supernaturalism. They seek signs and
wonders to such excess that they become the willing victims of the huckster
It is this generation that will willingly follow the
false prophet of the antichrist into the logic of unity for all the world. They
want in their manmade signs and wonders what the antichrist will be more then
willing to feed them. They easily flow with Roman Catholic mysticism in new
packaging, to Jim and Tammy, to Benny Hinn, to the latest TV actor/evangelist,
and eventually to the antichrist himself.
There will be no sign for this wicked generation other
then the simplicity of faith in the crucified and risen Lord Jesus Christ. He is
coming again with His Jewish Kingdom of righteousness. It will mean eternal
condemnation for this generation of apostates. They have accepted and promoted

Al-Qaida linked to attack on Tunisian synagogue
Foreign Minister Michael Melchior yesterday confirmed reports that

drove a truck laden with gas canisters into the synagogue, was connected to a

U.K. Paper Says It Has Bin Laden Video
LONDON- A British newspaper said Sunday it had obtained a previously
unseen video of Osama bin Laden, in
which the Saudi-born dissident says that any country siding with Israel is a
target for Islamic terrorists.
The Sunday Times newspaper said that unidentified supporters of the
al-Qaida leader claimed sections of the 40-minute video were filmed eight
The newspaper said, however, that the video did not provide enough clues
for it to be dated. Britain's Ministry of Defense said it had not seen the
film and so could not comment on its contents.
This is not a war on terrorism as promoted.
The truth is this is, and always has been a war declared by Islam on Jews! There
is nothing Islam hates more then Jews. They hate Christianity and America, but
not with the intensity that they hate the Jew! The Jew is, and always had been
the ultimate object of all Islamic terrorism.
Osama bin Laden knew his best weapon
for terrorism was the first time off-guard airliner missile. He also knew
Israeli security was too strong for certain success, but it was almost a
guarantee to work in the pre 9-11 USA. It is the hate for Jews that was always
behind bin Laden and al-Qaida as recent revelations show. It is foolish to try
to disassociate Israel from the "War on Terrorism." It is as foolish to not
recognize all of Islam as being involved!
Islam takes pride in their double
tongued trading abilities of anything that can make a buck including human
chattel (infamous Arab slave traders). That ability in making a good trade is
now prominent in their public diplomatic statements. Their vanity in making the
trade allows only for them to come out on top no matter what the object of
discussion or trade might be. It is buyer beware in both trade items and
diplomacy! Anyone who has shopped for souvenirs in the local market places of
the Middle East know what I am talking about. However, there is a great
difference between haggling over the price of an olive wood art object, and
getting the upper hand with the world on the murdering of vulnerable Jewish
civilians (mostly targeted children).
I suspect when God deals with Islam
in Ezekiel 39, the world will convince itself Islam was just an innocent victim.
The world will be reminded by the antichrist of all the friendly rhetoric Islam
had spoken rather then their acts of terrorism. 9-11, and all future 9-11's will be blamed
on a small few radicals like bin Laden and al-Qaida not Islam as a whole.
The present homicide bombers
attacking Israel are pictured as a radical few associated with small independent
militant groups. It is the rhetoric of Islam looking for the best deal with
world opinion that produces such a view. The truth is God is going to destroy Islam for its hate and
wickedness. The world that wanted to hear the lie will find the same fate in
just 7 short years after the destruction of Islam. Armageddon comes first before
the Lord Jesus Christ establishes His Jewish Kingdom here on earth!

suicide bombers like those who have attacked public places in Israel will hit

INSERT: Saying No" To A Palestinian State
The widely-held assumption in many foreign, and Israeli,
circles that a Palestinian state is the
desired solution for the current conflict is increasingly coming under fire.
Arutz-7 presents the following set of excerpts - the first in a series -
presenting voices that warn that a PLO state is far from an ideal solution:
Is the war of Islam on the Jews coming to your town?
God seems to be allowing this war to become very personal to the country
that dictates policy to Israel. Osama bin Laden said we are marked for death
because we side with Israel. The FBI says it can't protect us from the kind
of terrorism Israel faces daily from the homicide bombers. My personal
thoughts are we will institute concentration camps for Arabs like we did for
Japanese Americans during WW II before we put up with one week of terrorist
attacks as happens in Israel?
I only wonder if the war should come to your town whether you would be
willing to give the Arabs a state of their own right in the middle of town
as the solution? I only wonder if God may be ready to teach America a lesson
about His attitude to a Palestinian State in the middle of His Holy Land?
It matters not whether lessons are learned (or not). The end is
already written in stone (actually written in the Bible). The Lord Jesus
Christ is coming again to Jerusalem to establish His Jewish Kingdom, and
nothing will stop Him. The Holy Land is the Lord's not the politicians. The
Bible and current events say He is going to allow the Jews to have
possession not the Arabs. The religion will be Biblical Judaism not Islam,
and most certainly not apostate Christianity. Mankind can either submit, or
be eliminated. Even the powerful United States of America is but nothing
when God determines the time is right for the events leading to the Second
Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Ahmed Jibril's son killed in Beirut blast
The radical Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine-General Command has vowed to avenge the
assassination of the son of Ahmed Jibril, its leader, killed when his
bobby-trapped car exploded in Beirut yesterday.
Jihad Jibril, 41, reportedly died immediately as he
drove alone in his car through
Beirut's swank Corniche Mazraa shopping area. The explosion ripped
his body to shreds and damaged a number of other vehicles, but no one else
The younger Jibril had been the head of operations for the PFLP-GC and
was the man behind the group's recent
attacks against Israel from Lebanon.
He was also possibly linked to attempted
arms smuggling to the Palestinian
Officials of the the Damascus-based PFLP-GC confirmed that Jihad Jibril
had been killed. His father received the news in Damascus where he has been
based for decades. His mother, Um Jihad, wept hysterically.
Since 1968 Jibril has led the small PFLP-GC, which
totally rejects Israel's right to
exist and has severely opposed Palestinian Authority Chairman
Yasser Arafat's PLO for signing the Oslo peace accords. He blamed Israel for
the assassination of his son. ...
Israel denied any connection to
the killing of Jibril.
"Not everything that blows up in Beirut needs to be connected to Israel,"
Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said yesterday.
"We have no part of this," added Ben-Eliezer's media adviser Yarden
Vatikay. "As usual, they blame Israel."
Abu Dhabi TV reported last night
that a number of Palestinian suspects
had been detained by Lebanese police in connection with the bombing
of Jibril's car. It reported that Jibril might have been killed in an
internal feud between rival Palestinian groups.
Israel Radio, quoting a report on AFP, said a previously unknown group
called "The Lebanese Nationalists
Organization" claimed responsibility for the killing. It said in a
statement faxed to the AFP office in Nicosia, Cyprus that Jibril was
targeted to avenge the group's operations in Lebanon on Syria's orders. ...
In 1970, PFLP-GC terrorists
fired a bazooka at a school bus, killing 10 pupils
and teachers near Moshav Avivim.
In 1985, it attained unprecedented prestige by winning the release of
1,150 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prisons in return for three IDF
soldiers captured in Lebanon in 1982.
Its the same old story. Everything is blamed on
Israel. More bazooka attacks on Jewish school buses will be justified by
these wild animals that can't even get along with their fellow Islamic
monsters. They kill each other then tell the Islamic world, and even the
rest of the world gullible enough to listen that Israel is to blame.
Somewhere in Israel, one of those poor brainwashed Islamic children will
strap on a bomb to make Israel pay the price. It is too bad Allah can't
reveal the truth to these little ones. All that happens is another
life, and the lives of many innocent Jewish victims gets wasted on lies from
the Islamic adult leadership.
It is for this wickedness, and the congruent
behavior of Islam as a whole that God is going to manifest quick judgment.
The issue is not a comparison of righteousness on the part of others, but
just the obvious wickedness that Islam has allowed to control their future
aspirations as a religion. What makes this wickedness the kind that will
bring a one time judgment is the place and the time! The place is the Holy
Land, and the time is when God has brought the Jews back to possess the
land! God's plan for dispensational change, and Islam's wicked resistance to
that plan is about to bring judgment. God's plan is for a coming Jewish
Kingdom ruled by a Jewish King is the source of this wicked resistance by
Islam. The specific targeting of Jewish children has revealed just how
wicked Islam has become. The tongue in cheek denials of these acts, or
denial of complicity with these actions is obvious to all. A terrible
judgment of earth shattering magnitude is what the Bible reveals is coming
for Islam according to Ezekiel 39.
today do not want to be confronted with the wrath of the God of the
Bible. Eternal condemnation in torment is a subject that most refuse to
contemplate. There will be no hiding for Islam in Ezekiel 39, and there will
be no hiding from the wrath of the lamb for all who reject salvation in the
name of Jesus Christ in this dispensation and the next!
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done!
11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and
they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image,
and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
15The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net
which they hid is their own foot taken.
16The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared
in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17The wicked shall be
turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
15Let death seize upon them, and let them
go down quick into hell:
for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
16As for me, I will
call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.

Nuclear war threat over Kashmir
Straw mission over 'very real' chance of India-Pakistan conflict
BRITAIN gave warning of the
“very real and very disturbing”
possibility of nuclear war between India and Pakistan last night as
the Government prepared an emergency mission to Delhi and Islamabad.
Jack Straw is to fly to the capitals next week to try to avert
“the most serious conflict in the
world in terms of potential casualties and the use of nuclear weapons”.
In a chilling assessment of the escalating tensions in the sub-continent,
the Foreign Secretary told journalists: “The international community is
watching events with mounting
concern. This is a crisis the
world cannot ignore.”
Ministers believe the situation is now so tense that just one provocation
could trigger catastrophe,
and the murder of a prominent Muslim leader yesterday plunged the region
even deeper into trouble. A million
soldiers are assembled along the India-Pakistan border, most of them
concentrated in the disputed region of
where fresh clashes were reported yesterday.
God has divided this world into 4 quarters. North,
South, East, and West. Israel as part of the East sits near the middle of these
4 quarters. We are familiar with the most powerful Western World which
includes the USA as part of both North and South America, and most of Europe to
Israel's West. The historical divider between East and West runs through the
Aegean Sea of the Mediterranean separating Greece from Turkey. The South is
Africa including Egypt, and the North is mostly the old USSR.
What makes these divisions important is that the Bible
speaks to the final conflict (Armageddon) before the Kingdom age involves these
4 quarters of the earth. They are denoted by their future Kings. One each
for North, South, East, and West (home of the antichrist). What seems to be
happening between Pakistan and India besides the obvious Moslem Hindu conflict
is the clear delineation (Kashmir) between North (Pakistan) and East (India).
The North is important from a Biblical perspective because it is involved in two
separate invasions of Israel during those last days before the Kingdom. The
first invasion before the beginning of the Great Tribulation is found in Ezekiel
38 & 39. It is a 3 pronged Islamic Jihad which involves the Islamic part of the
North, the Islamic part of the East, and the Islamic part of the South. The
second Invasion at the end of the Great Tribulation is the gathering of all the
nations of the North, South, East, and West for the final battle of Armageddon
in the Valley of Megiddo. It is the North that invades the City of Jerusalem on
that last day when Jesus Christ returns as King of the Jews, and King of the
earth. The 144,000 Jews who lay the foundation for a return to Biblical Judaism,
and build the Third Jewish Temple with the Two Witnesses at the beginning of the
Great Tribulation are there at the end when the Lord Jesus Christ returns. I
believe they return from the wilderness where God watched over them during the
time (3-1/2 years) the antichrist had been desecrating the Temple. On those last
days they cleanse the Temple during the confusion of the antichrist withdrawing
before the King of the North's attack which flows all the way into Egypt. On the
last day the King of the North returns to Jerusalem for a final mop-up of Jewish
resistance. It is then The Lord Jesus Christ shall fight as in the day of
Islam will be first to face the wrath of God (Ezekiel
39) at the beginning of the Great Tribulation, and the world will face the wrath
of God (Revelation 14) at the end of the Great Tribulation!
Final Invasion leading to Armageddon
2For I will gather all
nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be
taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city
shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be
cut off from the city.
3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of

the end shall the king of the south push at him: and
the king of the north
shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and
with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and
shall overflow and pass over.
41He shall enter also
into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown:
but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of
the children of Ammon.

Egypt shall not escape.

Missile-carrying Indian warships sail near Pakistan, air force on alert
Missile-carrying Indian naval
warships steamed into the Arabian Sea, closer to Pakistan, as
military tensions between the two South Asian nuclear neighbours soared,
officials here said.
"We have moved five frontline ships of the eastern fleet to be
cross-deployed to the western seaboard to augment the force levels," Naval
spokesman Commander Rahul Gupta said.
Highly-placed naval sources told AFP that four of the vessels are armed
with missiles but the spokesman declined to elaborate on the
redeployment, which comes in the
middle of heightening military tensions between India and Pakistan.
"A Russian-built destroyer, an indigenous frigate and three corvettes are
steaming into the Arabian Sea from the Bay of Bengal," the source said,
adding the destroyer, the frigate and two of the corvettes are
capable of launching missiles.
The Indian Navy has already brought the country's merchant navy under its
flag and kept its only aircraft carrier on a state of alert in the Bay of
The Indian Air Force, the world's fourth largest, also went on alert as
gained momentum on Wednesday.
God is in control of world events, but He lifts His
hand that the fruits of sin will have their just results. This foolish world
thinks if it can only solve the problems with Israel everything will then be
well? The world once thought if only Communism might be defeated everything
would be well then also? It was not Communism that caused turmoil in the world
as it is not Israel. The problem is sin. Should God remove His guiding hand over
the world as He will during the Great Tribulation, it will not take long before
sin destroys all of mankind. The potential for war, and destruction is always
just an incident away.
I suspect the Moslem Pakistan will be part of the
Northern Invading force in the Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39. The army now
poised to repel India will join the other Moslem invaders from North of the
Caucuses that will make up the Gog from the land of Magog. Only one sixth will
return totally defeated. I would expect India will just take back Pakistan, and
it will revert back to it's original status as part of India. It will then be
under the Eastern King who will rule the hordes of both India and China. In the
last days the Bible says the Euphrates River will dry-up releasing those hordes
from the East to head for the Valley of Megiddo, and Armageddon!

nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38 & 39. They will all be part of the soon coming
Islamic Jihad invasion of Israel. The war started with the Northern arm of Islam
reaching into Georgia and Chechnya the heart of the Gog across the Caucasus, and
now appears to be moving to the Eastern arm of old Persia. Soon it will move to
Libya and the Sudan of the Southern arm. The success of this war on terrorism is
not the utter destruction of the Islamic armies, but rather getting new
governments that will be word friendly to the West. American aid flows into
these countries once the hand shakes are done. The heart of Islam still hates
the Jew above all other people. When the antichrist or his forerunners weaken

shields, all of them handling swords:

that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8After many days thou shalt be visited:
in the latter years
thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is
gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have
been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall
dwell safely all of them.

the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

37Yea, they sacrificed
their sons and their daughters unto devils,
Sixteen-year-old becomes youngest Palestinian suicide
Fri May 24, 3:19 PM ET
By IBRAHIM HAZBOUN, Associated Press Writer
BETHLEHEM, West Bank - A teen-age Palestinian who blew himself up this week
amid a group of elderly Israelis playing cards and dominoes in a park, was the
youngest suicide bomber in the last 20 months of bloodshed.
What causes a child to become a wild bloodthirsty beast? It is
the culture! The parents, the religion, the teachers, the news media, and the
government all train the little children to become wild bloodthirsty animals. It
is all done by the adults who tell them it is Allah's will. The rich Moslem
sheiks who manipulate and finance all of it while sitting on their thrones in
faked innocents are more corrupt then even the homosexual part of the Roman
Catholic priesthood. A larger world watches with little distain because it
is Jews who are being murdered. This culture would be the outrage of the world
were it victimizing any other Western capital city. Today, it seems the only
other one besides the Jews that is outraged is God.
The stage is set for a one time judgment of Islam. The
wickedness of this culture nurtured in the name of religion has reached up to
heaven. The Jews have experienced worse wickedness, but never in the Holy Land.
And, never at the time when God was preparing to change dispensations. The wrath
of God is revealed in the Bible. The land where the wickedness is taking place
is His. The time is God's also.
The challenge has been boldly laid out before the whole
world by Islam. The Holy Land and the future is either Allah and the Koran, or
God and the Bible! It is either Islam , or Judaism (a return to the Bible
Judaism)! The wickedness has reached the depths of depravity with child
sacrifice. The end can't be far away!
21And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to
Molech, neither shalt thou
profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
20:1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the
children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that
giveth any of his seed unto Molech;
he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone
him with stones.
3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from
among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto
Molech, to defile my
sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when
he giveth of his seed unto Molech,
and kill him not:
5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family,
and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit
whoredom with Molech, from
among their people.
2 Kings 17:17-18
17And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire,
and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do
evil in the sight of the
LORD, to provoke him to anger.
18Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his
sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.

Ice oceans found on Mars
Water-ice has been found in vast
quantities just below the surface across great swathes of the planet Mars
The finding by the American space agency
Nasa is undoubtedly one of the most important made about the Red Planet.
It solves one of its deepest mysteries, points the way for manned
exploration and reignites the
question of whether life may exist on Mars.
Insiders suggest that partly as a result of this finding, Nasa may commit
itself to a manned landing within 20
Look for life
The dramatic discovery may also guide the selection of future landing and
exploration sites on Mars, and may suggest areas
to look for evidence of past life.
The presence of such a vast amount of ice - if it were to melt it could
cover the planet in an ocean
at least 500 metres deep (1640 feet) - will change profoundly the direction
of future exploration. ...
The Mars Polar Lander was to touch down in exactly the right spot in 1999
and would have undoubtedly detected the ice had it not
malfunctioned on the way down.
Having water just below the surface will be an enormous boon to
astronauts on Mars.
Water is essential for life, so the discovery enhances the
belief that Mars could have had life
in the past and perhaps in the present as well.
Because of that, bringing a sample of the ice and rock back to Earth by
an unmanned sample return probe is becoming a top priority.
I remember the first Mars Lander when I was working in
the fish canneries of Alaska. I was one of only two practicing Christians at the
cannery. All day long people went out of their way to let me know life had been
found on the red planet. It turned out to be a false report due to equipment
malfunction, but I often reflect on how such a discovery of life beyond earth
stirs the unsaved into bold, and even a gleeful denial that God exists. It
wasn't anything that I had ever said. It was just an automatic reaction by those
who demanded my testimony be either wrong or phony. They couldn't break the fact
that God had changed my life for righteousness sake (not perfection), but life
on Mars was all the justification they needed to break my testimony from a
rationally thinking person's perspective.
Carl Sagan left behind a testimony to the world of a
rational thinker. He is glorified today much like Mother Teresa. His most
noteworthy achievement was the SETI extravaganza which spent billions looking
for intelligent life in the universe. He only found what all the space
probes ever launched found. That the universe is sterile!
I personally feel the Kingdom will be here before any
manned exploration of Mars takes place. I am not afraid to say all they would
have found is another sterile planet in a universe of sterility. Evolution is a
lie. Carl Sagan bet his life on evolution, and left only finding that there is
no evidence. I have given my life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Every day I'm amazed
at how He changed my life for the good. He has proven Himself more then
sufficient in all that life can throw at me! My testimony can be
duplicated a thousand fold by others who are born again not by personal vanity,
but by changed lives who's testimonies can't be broken no matter what the test.
The testimony of one who was lost, but now is found. A
testimony that can't be broken leaves those who willingly remain in sin without
excuse. If God saved me who was lost as any, then God can save any who will just
come to Christ as I did!
4What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not
leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost,
until he find it?
5And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
6And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying
unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
7I say unto you, that likewise
joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that
repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
28Come unto me,
all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and
I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.

Mofaz confirms JP report on Iranian Shihab 3 test
Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Shaul Mofaz confirmed yesterday that Iran
has recently tested its medium range
Shihab-3 missile, and warned that the day was approaching when
Teheran could pose an existential
threat to the Jewish state.
As reported in The Jerusalem Post two weeks ago, Iran carried out a
successful test of its Shihab-3 1,300-km-range missile and
has decided to start serial
US officials said Thursday that Iran had carried out a successful test of
the Shahab-3, which has a range of 1,300 kilometers
(810 miles) adequate to reach Israel
and US troops stationed in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and eastern
Shamkhani said Saturday that US pressure on Russia and China to halt
cooperation with Iran had no impact on its missile program.
Shamkhani also denied reports that Iran was planning to produce
Shahab-4 or Shahab-5 missiles,
which would have longer ranges.
The luxury of time is no longer available. Another burst of technological advancement in the
Islamic world brings confrontation of end time scenarios that much closer to
reality. These are not responsible governments, but fanatical religious zealots
who are intent on bringing suicidal havoc on the non-Islamic world even at the
cost of their own children. Israel above
all others is their primary goal of conquest. The same irresponsible attitudes
of the fanatical Nazis and suicidal Japanese who thought nothing of
sacrificing children for their cause raises it's ugly head again in Islam. The
cultures are familiar, and only the names have changed. This time technology,
and the computer age has brought the reality of worldwide destruction to all.
The 9/11 wake-up has opened the eyes of only a few. The aftermath of 9/11
indicates a world ready for destruction. The churches that filled the first
weeks after 9/11 are now empty again. America has turned its back on God despite
all the dire warnings of things yet to come. It will soon be that men will look
for God in their troubles, but it will be too late. God will not be mocked!
Longsuffering has limits, and those limits are being revealed in this present
I can only wonder at the masses that filled the Churches
after 9/11 found it too late for them? It is God who knows the heart, and when
it is time to shut the door! The Kingdom is at hand, and many will find the door
is shut when God looks into their hearts.

26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a
whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they
shall not find me:
29For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
30They would none of my counsel:
they despised all my reproof.
31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with
their own devices.

POLICE LOOKING FOR "QUIET" MOMENT TO RE-OPEN TEMPLE MOUNT
Israel authorities are leaning towards
ending the 20-month ban on Christian and Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount,
but the Muslim Waqf is threatening to block their entry.
Nearly two years after the
government declared the Temple Mount in
Jerusalem off-limits to non-Muslims, efforts are again under way to
"quietly" reopen the site to
Christians and Jews soon, Israeli police and security officials said over the
weekend. The Israeli cabinet is soon expected to implement a recommendation by
the Shin Bet to gradually reopen to the
Temple Mount to Jews and Christians, returning to the status quo that
existed before the outbreak of the violent Palestinian intifada in late
September 2000, when the site was open
The issue was supposed to be addressed by the cabinet earlier this spring, but
the wave of suicide bombings and Operation Defensive Shield
put the move on hold.
The 20-month ban has been the longest
the site has been closed to non-Muslims since the unification of Israel's
capital in 1967. Israeli intelligence has urged the re-opening of the
site, fearing that right-wing extremists may take matters into their own hands
and concerned that the long closure of the site is setting a dangerous
precedent. Israeli police opposed the move at first, but have shifted their
views, according to informed sources.
Adnan al-Husseini, director of the Waqf at the site, threatened that he would
not allow non-Muslims to enter. "Only Palestinians will decide who will and who
will not enter," he said.
The issue is sovereignty, and who really has control
over the Temple Mount! Islam lost it's sovereignty in the1967 six day war when
all of Jerusalem reverted from Jordanian control to Jewish sovereignty. Islam
has tried to impose sovereignty by threat only, but the Jews are the ones with
the final say as to how the Temple mount will be administered. It is Jewish will
not Islamic will that has the last word! I'm convinced that as Arafat must
go so also must Adnan al-Husseini of the Islamic Waqf. He was instrumental in
destroying forever the Jewish archeological remains under the Temple Mount as he
attempted to build a grand mosque there. His desecration of this Holy Place is
comparable to what the antichrist will do to it when sovereignty falls into his
The Jews have sat back for 35 years leaving Islam call
the shots on the Temple Mount under the guise of keeping the peace. It has
proved a futile attempt at compromise with an adversary who has no respect, and
is out to destroy Israel. I suspect this quite takeover will be as futile. The
end can only be the complete eviction of these heathen interlopers. A complete
bulldozer type cleansing of the Mount, and the call for a Third Jewish Temple is
the only end. How it happens can only be speculation for now, but it is going to
happen. The Bible says a Third Jewish Temple will be standing, and performing
proper kosher service 3-1/2 years into the Great Tribulation.
This quiet attempt at turning back the clock is not
going to work. What will work is Jews looking at real time, and moving forward
in preparation for the coming Jewish Biblical Kingdom.
16Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies:
shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be
stretched forth upon
17Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through
prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion,
and shall yet choose
13And said unto them, It is written,
My house shall be called the house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt
keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge
and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among
these that stand by.
8Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit
before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold,
I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
9For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone
shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD
of hosts, and I will
remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
10In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his
neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree.

RED CROSS TO PUT MDA ON "EQUAL FOOTING"
International Red Cross officials announced late last week that Israel's
national emergency medical society Magen
(Red Star of David) will be placed on an "equal footing" with all other members
of the Red Cross movement pending their formal admittance 18 months down
After more than
50 years of
unfairly being barred from full
membership, MDA appears to have finally broken the barrier, and will be
granted full membership in 18 months. In the meantime, the humanitarian
organization will be allowed to participate in all IRCM activities, work, and
The breakthrough was announced on Thursday by Jaap Timmer, the International Red
Cross Federation representative in Israel, in a meeting with the MDA council.
Timmer added that from now on, MDA is included in the list of Red Cross Web
sites and on the list of all Red Cross communications. The decision comes after
the American Red Cross increased
pressure on the International Red Cross headquarters in Geneva by withholding
Despite the good news for MDA, a Red Cross official
criticized Israel last week,
charging it with violating the Fourth Geneva Conventions on Warfare by
exiling the 13 Bethlehem terrorists
sent to European countries to end the 39-day standoff at the Church of the
Nativity. The conventions prohibit the mass transfer of populations to or from
areas under foreign military occupation.
The Red Cross criticism is actually
untenable, since the Palestinians agreed to be "temporarily" exiled rather than
stand trial in Israel on terrorism charges. In addition, Israel contends
the treaty in question does not legally apply to Judea/Samaria and Gaza, since
they are "disputed" territories, and not "occupied" lands of a state that is a
signatory to the conventions.
This is another example of the world's subtle
anti-Semitism. It was once argued that Israel's refusal to use the Red Cross,
but rather a Red Star of David was reason enough to refuse admission. That
argument proved nothing but smoke screening when the Red Crescent was deemed
acceptable for Moslem countries. It is sad that it wasn't until the
International purse strings were tightened by the American branch that they
finally (50-years) relented. The bad attitude against Israel was highlighted
with that stupid criticism made at the same time of the acceptance announcement.
I have heard no criticism of the Palestinians who use Red Crescent ambulances to
move their armed assassins into hot firefights. Most recently the Israeli's have
captured homicide bombers inside the Red Crescent ambulances in transport, and
the Red Crescent is regularly used by the Palestinians to move bombs and arms.
It is a one sided world that will change from subtlety
to open hostility when the antichrist comes. The hate is already there just
waiting for one even worse then Hitler to offer leadership. The denial of Israel
into the Red Cross when the abuses of the Palestinian Red Crescent are so
blatantly ignored is only anti-Semitism at it's worst. No other nation has ever
been this mistreated for this length of time. Again, the only thing Israel has
been guilty of over the last 50-years is that they are Jewish!
Last Half of Great Tribulation

war with him?

and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his
name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

to make war with the saints,
and to overcome them:
and power was given
him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

In the mind of a would-be suicide
Looking at Thauriya Hamamreh, it is hard to accept that she had wanted to
blow herself to pieces and murder
and maim as many Israelis as possible in the process.
This petite, dark haired Palestinian had planned, however, to do just
that for reasons that remain incomprehensible on any rational level, even
after a nearly two-hour interview.
Hamamreh, a fervently religious Muslim with an engaging and almost impish
smile, volunteered to be a suicide bomber and offered her services to
someone with whom she was acquainted from the
Aksa Martyrs Brigades.
She had an explosive belt, packed
with nails and other metal objects stitched into the lining, strapped around
her body during a 45-minute training session in Nablus two days before the
scheduled attack. Hamamreh was arrested at her aunt's home in Tulkarm
on May 20, the day of the planned attack. ...
She said doubts had begun
to gnaw at her mind, along with seeds of
disillusionment regarding her
handlers and their motives, during the 24 hours between the dry run
and the intended bombing.
Hamamreh, 25, who looks much younger, spoke to reporters yesterday at the
Kishon jail near Haifa, where she is being held in the security wing, about
the steps that led to her volunteering to become a human bomb.
The instructions she received unleashed a series of doubts, primarily
over the "righteousness" of the
operation and whether her prime motivation, which was of a personal
nature rather than a pure religious belief, would weigh against her
when she confronted God after her
"I also began to imagine the
people I would be killing, whether they would be
women and children, families sitting
down at a cafe. I became a bit disillusioned, because
I had been told to blow myself up in
any event," she said.
"This meant to me that what was
important for them was to succeed in perpetrating an attack, whether there
were casualties or not, and then
be able to pat themselves on the back. I felt like
they were playing
a game with the blood of the martyrs."
Instead of obeying instructions, she decided to visit the home of an aunt
in Tulkarm, pretending that it was a normal visit even though she had
basically run away from home.
She stressed that she had no
personal fear and that for her to be shot and killed was not
something that frightened her. She only fears God.
When she was asked how she would react when she met members of her
family, she suddenly broke down and
"I would ask their forgiveness
for having gone away and for having caused them so much concern, because
parents do not raise their children to seek death.
I would hope they would forgive me
as parents do, although I would prefer not to see them now because I
wouldn't really know what to say."
This is an extraordinary interview. It indicates that
compassion as a human being has not been entirely eradicated by the Arafat
culture forced on the Palestinian people. It indicates that the robot cloning
process by the adult leadership has not succeeded in every case. The sad part of
this story will be in the months to come should this young girl try to return to
the only family and culture she has known. I'm sure there will be no parades in
the streets for her. I doubt her life is worth a plug nickel anywhere in
Palestine, and probably nowhere else in the entire Islamic world. I would
suspect Israel will do its best to provide a sanctuary, but love of family even
if one sided will probably win out. I think she knows already her family will
never be allowed to show her compassion again. A bullet in the head by her
handlers may be her best expectation for an end to this tragic situation?
I will be praying that Christ might give her true
refuge. The greatest miracle in the most hopeless situation is what God does in
this wicked world of sin. It is for the meek and lowly that the Kingdom is
coming. This worthless wicked world needs change. God is about to change
"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will be done!"
The Coming Kingdom
righteousness shall he judge
and reprove with equity for
the meek of the earth: and he shall smite
the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he
slay the wicked.
5And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness
the girdle of his reins.
6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with
the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little
child shall lead them.
7And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down
together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned
child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.

my holy mountain:
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover
10And in that day there shall be
a root of Jesse, which
shall stand for an
ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:
and his rest shall be glorious.

in that day, that the
Lord shall set his hand again the
second time to
recover the remnant of
his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt,
and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath,
and from the islands of the sea.
12And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and
shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together
the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
